2009 Young Adult Book Challenge

My favorite book this month was, hands down, The Hunger Games. It was such a compelling and well-written book. My favorite audio was Abhorsen. I love Garth Nix.

I changed by background on my blog. It is very colorful and I'm still deciding how I like it. I think the owl is cute. I also condensed by sidebars as much as I could and move the challenges into a simple status + link format. The listings were getting bulky. I'm moving right along on most of my challenges except for the Scott Westerfeld one. I need to get that done. July was a pretty good reading month for me. I hope it was for you too.


  1. You did a great job and you're SO much more moderate with challenges than I am. Wow I need to quit joining them...

  2. I'm trying to keep it to a manageable level even though I'm tempted all the time.

  3. I've only heard wonderful things about The Hunger Games. I'm going to have to pick it up one of these days.
